Sites of Memory: Legacies of the Japanese Canadian Internment

The histories, impacts and legacies of the Canadian government’s internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II are powerfully considered in video, installation and works on paper by three contemporary artists of Japanese-Canadian ancestry.

Inheriting Redress: The Ottawa Japanese Community Association Archive

In spring 1988, Japanese Canadians marched on Parliament Hill to pressure the government to acknowledge and offer compensation for their internment during World War II. This exhibition surveys the redress campaign’s visual culture, telling stories through objects loaned by the Ottawa Japanese Community Association and activists involved in the landmark effort.

Rah: SuperNova

SuperNova is a video installation that presents a futuristic talent show set in an intergalactic realm. Rah appears in the guise of seven different characters, including Oreo, Fatimeh and Coco, whose talent show entries playfully explore questions of race and ethnic performance.

Olivia Johnston: Saints and Madonnas

The Ottawa-based artist investigates Christianity’s influence on art and society with a new series of photographic portraits of her contemporaries portraying saintly figures.
